Can I Have Multiple Teeth Extracted All At One Time?
Posted on 9/19/2022 by Dr. Johnson
While it may be uncommon, you can have multiple teeth extracted all at one time. Here is an explanation of how and why you may want to have multiple teeth removed simultaneously.
When Do Multiple Teeth Extractions Happen?
Multiple tooth extractions happen for a number of reasons. If you are facing severe tooth or gum disease, the dentist may recommend extracting more than one tooth to prevent the spread of infection. You may also need to have all of your wisdom teeth removed if they are infected or they are impacted. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, they can't push their way through your gums, and they may cause you headaches and jaw pain. Some people have large teeth and a small jaw. Their permanent teeth need more space, especially if they need additional dental work. Dentists may remove additional teeth.
What Happens In A Multiple Tooth Extraction?
Multiple-tooth extractions can happen in a variety of ways. First, if you have a complicated extraction, the dentist may want you to go under general anesthesia. If you have general anesthesia, you will be asleep for the entire procedure. You will have to have a person drive you from the appointment because you won't be able to drive or work on the day of the procedure. Also, the dentist or oral surgeon will make an incision in your gumline to remove the teeth in a complicated extraction.
If your multiple tooth extraction doesn't involve impacted or infected teeth, the dentist may be able to extract your teeth easily. The dentist can numb the area around your tooth and use a tool to loosen the tooth roots that connect your teeth to the jawbone. If you have advanced tooth decay or gum disease, extracting the teeth may be quick. Talk to the dentist if you are worried about pain or discomfort during the procedure. That way, the dentist can discuss sedation techniques with you before your procedure.
